Welcome back! Today we are going to discuss the Marshall MG10 CF guitar amplifier – a really affordable yet powerful amp from a very well known brand in the music industry.
The article will talk about the amps features, specifications and also about the sound.
The Marshall MG10 CF is a solid-state 10-watt output amp. It weighs about 5kg or 11lbs.
The amp is really well built with one 6.5″ speaker installed. For the aesthetics, it has a “carbon fibre” look at the frames hence defining the term “CF”.
It has two channels clean and overdrive. It has one volume control for the clean channel and one volume + one gain control for the overdrive channel.
Instead of having additional bass, mid and treble controls, it has a “contour” control which is similar to the “tone” speed knob on an electric guitar. It scoops down the mids giving you a rich and warm sound on any given channel.
Apart from having a standard guitar input jack, it has two 3.5mm jacks.
One is a headphone output jack for those late-night practices. The other one is an input jack through which you can jam over some backing tracks by connecting your phone.
For connecting your phone to the amp, use a 3.5mm AUX cable and directly connect it to the amp.

The sound ranges from clean to plexi to all the way to hard rock/metal. However, being a 10-watt amp, the sound gets slightly muddy as you dial the gain above 7.

The amp is a great example of value for money and how big brands can make great products for all types of consumers. Hats-off to Marshall for living up to its name.
